I think this article from Philly2Philly speaks for itself. I thought I had seen it all until now. There is nothing I can add to this sad and despicable time in our history.
The Tea Party movement has shown its ugly colors yesterday as members of its movement hurled racial epithets at several black congressman during their so-called health care protest yesterday in Washington D.C. And, as the House votes on Healthcare Reform today the Tea Party's message has been twarted by racism.
Republican National Chairman Michael Steele has a nightmare on his hands. And, so do the Tea Party supporters who aren't racist. To be fair, the majority of Tea Party protesters aren't racist, but they have a public image problem that won't go away.
The images and video clips throughout this article don't lie. Any reasonably intelligent human being can surmise that you won't see any of this psychobabble and racial bigotry on display at an EPA protest.
Ultimately, what started out as a well-intentioned movement has been reduced to a haven for uneducated bottom feeders. Any "positive" message the non-racist Tea Partiers hope to get across is drowned out by a cacophony of nasty insults, jeers, and racist psychobabble.
The video is really worth watching but the slide show below it is as powerful.
